The chances are someone you know has mentioned CBD to you. Or you have perhaps even tried it but didn’t really see what the fuss is all about. The thing is, like pretty much everything in life, CBD doesn’t work instantly and not all CBD products are created equal. CBD is slowly but surely getting the attention that is truly deserves as more and more medical research is being conducted finding each time substantially more evidence towards it’s positive benefits.
My goal today is to answer the question that many people are asking as this miracle compound found in the hemp plant gains more and more popularity. We will cover the facts associated with research found and when you are done reading you will know the answer to why should I take CBD oil?
Supports Optimal Immune Function
I think the topic of immune system boosting is finally gaining some ground especially with the recent virus issues that the entire world has been dealing with. The thing is precaution is okay but fear actually weakens the immune system. We have the ability to boost our immune health in many ways and CBD has been show to be one of those ways.
One of the major things that CBD does to help with immune function is to hinder the body’s production of a protein called cytokines that causes inflammation both acute and chronic. Inflammation is bad for the body and shows that you are acidic and that makes it easier to get sick. CBD has also been used in helping with autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and even HIV/AIDS.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system that wasn’t discovered until the 1990s and we are still learning new information about it daily. The endocannabinoid system or EDC for short has been called the homeostatic regulator because it is continually working to keep the body biologically balanced. CBD works directly with the EDC in your body to reduce inflammation as well as regulate optimal immune function.
Helps With Pain and Inflammation
Chronic pain is a nightmare. Waking up at night because of pain can affect your sleep and that slows the body’s healing process and it can become a residual daily routine that we soon learn to “deal with”. The thing is even acute pain can be an issue and sometimes you just want to be able to do the things you were able to do before.
Pain can be neuropathic which is the nervous system like when that neck pain won’t go away and they say you have a pinched nerve. Also, you can have inflammatory pain which is related to neuropathic pain but is not limited to neurons and can be as minor as a headache. CBD has been proven to help with both neuropathic and inflammation pain by reducing the glutamate release as well as other inflammatory agents making it a neuroprotective.
This means that CBD can be used to help with anything from acute pain like a headache all the way to something more severe like a pinched nerve or even chronic pain like arthritis.
Supports Optimal Cardiovascular Health
Cardiovascular health is a very sensitive subject since we now live in a time when it is by far the leading killer in the United States with over 800 thousand annual deaths. There are many speculations as to why this number is so astoundingly high such as the S.A.D or standard American diet as well as lack of exercise.
CBD is known for it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidive properties that can help to reduce some major risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure. High blood pressure is one of the top factors for hypertensive heart disease and CBD has been proven to reduce blood pressure and heart rate therefore showing a lot of promise for those at a high risk of heart disease.
Take some CBD, eat a nice salad and go for a nice jog in the sun and get some vitamin D and put the cardiovascular health issues in the past.
Promotes and Supports Sound Sleep
Sleep is another big topic in health that can have you worried with no real answers. Some people say the pillow you use or the mattress you have will be the only factors to a good nights sleep, but I beg to differ. Not all of us can afford a fancy sleep number bed or that high tech pillow that guarantees proper spine alignment and the best sleep.
Although those things may be factors to how well you sleep they do not hold all the answers, at least not all the more affordable one’s. When it comes to sleep I sometimes have a hard time just getting comfortable and once I get to sleep it can be hard to avoid waking up several times.
CBD helps with pain and inflammation as we discussed before and that can hep you sleep in itself but It can also help with the root issues associated with insomnia. Better sleep equals more healing which leads to more productivity and a happier life all the way around.
The Proof is in the Pudding
Well if you were wondering why you should take CBD oil I hope I gave you enough reasons to at least give it a shot. Regardless, if you are dealing with immune system issues, pain and inflammation, insomnia or some form of cardiovascular risk factors I would recommend adding CBD to your daily routine. For me it has helped personally with sleeping better at night and it has also helped me to stay focused during the day while not dealing with the pesky acute pain I once had.
My 9 year old uses CBD and it has helped him with school and sleep as well. I have had many friends and family that have passed away from cancer and other diseases and I want to help people fight back because I believe in CBD’s healing power. Seeing the results from the many studies as well as the results I have experienced has led me to the point that I want to help other people see that CBD is the most amazing Natural Medicine in the world. Please feel free to share your thoughts and experiences with CBD products.
